Chabad voting for mizrachists time and again with excuses, just obscures that their sympathies lie there and that's it.

You have Satmar lunatics, Charedi mainstream, Chabad chardalim, and mizrachists.


Back to work.....
From many other things, this rings true ..
can you link sources to this pattern ?

I haven't read it,but my impression is that he had an agenda to marry the litvish hashkofa with satmar.

So in reality he's probably 80% accurate and 20% satmar influence. Not the pure hashkofa.
No way near 80% accurate.
Recreating history , choosing the Gedolim/Shitos that fit the narrative. Partially accurate but incorrect overall view/agenda .

Easiest solution - no tomatoes on Pesach.
If your looking for Chumrahs start with matzo.
Typical Chosid Shoitah ( Not you of course)
Peels all their tomatoes , squeezes their own fruit ,
And ..Than buys the cheapest Matzos,
and is essentially “mishing” With the lowest standard bakery .

I am not saying that they are not kosher. But to market them as "Hand Matzos" is misleading.

You spoke to the Divrei Chaim to confirm that he would approve of them?

How are these different than the early Machine Matzos that were forbidden? (other than the conveyor belt baking, which I don't think existed in the early days of Machine Matzos, and is just another issue).
Did I speak to the Divrei Chaim ??
Can we keep this Halachic discussion at a mature level ?

It doesn't explicitly say it, though it does say מצות אנשים. I will double check with the source of that quote. But one can simply buy a box and check out the texture. The machine matzos which are marketed as hand matzos are rolled using a hand operated machine, and are baked using a conveyor. The result of those is uniform matzos (just like the square machine matzos), unlike hand matzos which will never be uniform in thickness or in level of baking.

Here is an ad for those machine matzos which are marketed as hand matzos.
There is nothing wrong with the Ad either . Whoever wrote it is a Talmid Chacham who knows Hilchos Matza .
( the only sad part is Matza for Anash.. sadly Klal Yisroel is so terribly fractured that to sell Matzo you need to make an “us verse them issue”  )

I am flabbergasted whenever people refer to those as hand matzoh.

I am told by people that sampled them, that while they are round, the texture and "crunch" is similar to square machine matzoh.

Unfortunately, there is one Lubavitcher Rov in E.Y. that gives a Hechsher on these and calls them hand matzoh.
Don’t be flabbergasted.
From a Halachic Standpoint there is nothing wrong with them . They are one hundred percent Avodas Yad Matzos and are Kosher Lchatchila even according to the Divrei Chaim .
Maybe they are not so “traditional”,  but that’s not a Halachic issue .

My point is that he's asking "rabbanim" to do something he himself is not willing to do - actually call people out by name.

Ergo, #hypocrite.
He, as a layman can not call people out by name . He technically can , but than will have to deal with all the holier than thou types shouting Lashon Hora !
So He correctly turns to Our Rabbonim to deal with this . Since He has past experience , He knows nothing will happen unless he makes “ big issue “ out of it .
Look how many pages this has created ! How many comments on the original website!
Hopefully our Leaders will now speak up and deal with the issue .
Is this the nicest way to deal with the issue ? No
But this is what works !
Use common sense or ask people with experience before you whine about this method.

seems like you're confused on the methodology of asking a Rav to get involved. You seem to think that writing an anonymous letter on a website is the way to do it, as opposed to speaking to said Rav  in person..
That’s terribly naive . I would assume you have limited experience in this area .

I did. Here are some sample quotes:

Translation: I'm not going to actually call anyone out, that seems a bit risky for my own taste, I'm going to write an anonymous letter. But I would like all rabbanim to take a public stance against all the things I think are wrong with the world.

An added note - he's basically disrespecting all daas torah, despite the fact that there may be many rabbanim who do make statements to their kehillah about what they should or should not be doing. But because it's not loud enough for this letter-writer, he saying that "all rabbanim" (a heterogeneous group, as we all know) are culpable.

LOL. How about calling out specific people making parties that horrify him so?
He is asking the Rabbonim to get involved.
That’s the right way to do it . Why are you bashing the Shliach/messenger??

One more point - the letter/article does not deign to mention any names or actually call anyone out, but it wants OTHER people do so.

#hypocrite?
No it does not . Read it slowly and carefully.

What do you expect the open letter and awareness to accomplish?
Is this the standard you use ??
 Is this the standard most Rabbinical letters are held to ??
This is a way more important issue than most of the nonsense people get inundated with
On a daily basis .
You know this as well ! What is your agenda?
